Unplugged Ceremony Scripts
Please Turn Your Phones Off During the Wedding Ceremony!
Couples may choose to announce an unplugged ceremony for several reasons. And there are several reasons they might not. Some people say, "There's a sign to tell people to turn their phones off." That's true! But, it's also a cute sign that may be more eye-candy than a serious request.
You don't want phones ringing in the middle of your ceremony.
In that case, you can ask that gusts set their phones to silent.
You don't want guests to take pictures during the ceremony.
In this case, ask them to turn their phones off, or simply refrain from taking pictures during the wedding. You could compromise with a photo moment,
You don't want your guests taking pictures to get in the way of your professional photographer.
In this case, you can let guests know that there are professional pictures they will have access to later.
You might feel like your guests don't need to be told to turn their phones off.
This is a REALLY good point. It may be insulting to ask your guests to turn off their phones because, who wouldn't? It's a wedding! duh!!!
You may have family and friends spread far and wide across the globe and want them there via phone or video.
This was very true during COVID. But it's still true. It's your wedding, you can work with your photographer regarding your expectations. The ceremony pictures may not be that important or they could be staged at another time.
